Psalm 20

Good morning!
I want to share a scripture with you that I read this morning. It has become my prayer for each of us today and my praise to God for his faithfulness. The spaces I have added to help me to slow down and think about what the Lord is saying to me in each of the lines.

May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.

May he send you help from the sanctuary

and grant you support from Zion.

May he remember all your sacrifices
and accept your burnt offerings.

May he give you the desire of your heart
and make all your plans succeed.

We will shout for joy when you are victorious

and will lift up our banners in the name of our God.

May the Lord grant all your requests.

Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed;
he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.

They are brought to their knees and fall,
but we rise up and stand firm.

O Lord, save the king! Answer us when we call!
Psalm 20 (NIV)

Today, may we stand firm in the promise and the hope of the Lord.

In Christ's love and Mine,
Doug
